Happy Jubilee weekend readers! How’re you celebrating this long weekend? I’m currently sporting a Jubilee scarf and plopped in front of the television watching the Queen sail up (not literally, someone’s manning the boat for her) the Thames! A family friend is getting married on Tuesday too, so the next few days will be wedding mania as opposed to cracking out the Union Jack.
Week One of my internship with InStyle is going swimmingly, but the rush hour commute means that I’m super tired all the time, and taking photos or switching my laptop on is the least of my worries! This week has seen my blog enjoy a week off, albeit with an array of scheduled posts and I did get round to replying to blog comments last night while passed out on the sofa. I think next week, I’ll tone things down and post when I can get round to it!
So, for those of you wanting to hear more about life as an intern… well, I’m currently drowning in doing press sample call-ins. This is where you phone PR companies on behalf of editors and request samples that fit a story brief, and these are called in to the fashion cupboard, ready to sift through and sort for featuring. We also have the ‘fun’ job of returns: this is the other side of call-ins, returning samples to PR companies. There are also lots of other odds and ends to do, such as dealing with emails, sending issues of the mag out to press, filing lookbooks and tracking items, as well as assisting with trend and look boards. I’ve had about five placements overall, and they’re all very similar with varying degrees of responsibility. If you want advice, etc. please feel free to email me, internships aren’t as scary as you may think!
Any BIGBANG fans out there…? Currently lovin’ Monster and the video to go alongside it! I love you, baby I’m not a monster, lalala~ I’m still spending most of my spare time refreshing their Alive World Tour website, hoping their UK dates and venues are anywhere near suitable for me. Please come to London!
Finally, the three winners of my Filofax giveaway are Jackie (pink), Natasha (blue), and Rae (green). I’ll be emailing you later this afternoon, so please check your email Inboxes if your name is in this list! ♥
